Soaring towards the sky is actress Amala Paul with her recent incredible performances in Kollywood and Tollywood movies.
Having created a sensation in the South cinema, the young Keralite is basking in the accolades for her acting in Sindhu Samaveli, Mynaa, Deiva Thirumagal, Vettai, Muppozhudum Un Karpanaigal and Kaadhalil Sodhappuvadu Eppadi. This young star is sure to shine for a long time.
Amala Paul was first seen in supporting roles in some low budget Malayalam films. It was her performance as a controversial character in Sindhu Samaveli that brought her critical acclaim. People noticed her for the first time as a potential actress, one with zeal and talent.
In the film she plays the part of a young, married girl in a constant mental battle about two men in her life – her husband and her father-in-law. The film garners a controversial story line wherein love blossoms between daughter-in-law and father-in-law. She has given her heart to one and her body to another.
Despite the failure of that film, Amala Paul became noted for her performance. The film was based on a Russian novel First Love. On the other hand, Indian masses find it difficult to digest such films and Amala Paul’s success was marred with extreme reactions from the public. She has also reported that she received death threats from anonymous callers and was publicly scolded by women at a cinema hall in Chennai. But, she did not deter. Out she went, plunging into her roles to deliver her best to the audiences.
Then came her title role in Prabhu Solomon‘s Mynaa, which gave her critical acclaim for her work. Here, Amala Paul played the village belle, a performance that was marked as outstanding and won her recognition from actor Kamal Hassan and super star Rajnikanth. There was unanimous praise from critics, who used words such as “outstanding”, “riveting performance” and “immense talent”. Amala Paul also gained recognition from several award committees and bagged the Vijay Award for Best Debut Actress, with a nomination in the Best Actress category at the Filmfare Awards.
Amala Paul has received a lot of praise for her charming portrayals in Vettai and Kadhalil Sodhapuvadhu Yeppadi. Both these films are to be remade in Hindi and if news can be believed, Amala Paul is likely to be asked to reprise her roles in both of them. For Amala, this could be her lifetime opportunity, as both the films have been tried and tested, hence likely to hit the jackpot again.
With popularity soaring higher and higher, Amala Paul is not just making a name in Tamil films. Having first shot into the limelight with her fine performance in Mynaa, Deiva Thirumagal, Vettai, Muppozhudum Un Karpanaigal and Kaadhalil Sodhappuvadu Eppadi has bolstered her image in Tollywood too. Love Failure, the Telugu remake of Kaadhalil Sodhappuvadu Eppadi, has caught a lot of attention of audiences and critics. Amala has offers pouring in and looks like she now has a platter to pick from.
Recently, the Mallu babe is said to have signed a film opposite Ram Charan Tej, one of the big stars in Telugu. This she has confirmed by saying, “Yes, I have signed my next Telugu film opposite Ram Charan Tej. The film, to be directed by VV Vinayak, is yet to be titled.” The talented actress is no doubt over the moon with the opportunity to work with Charan. Amala Paul seems all set to rule the roost in South cinema.
After the great success of Mynaa Tamil film, Amala Paul was listed in “new face star of the year 2011?. Amala Paul has also acted in Malayalam movies Neelathamara and Ithu Nammude Katha. We hope and pray that Amala continues to be untouched by critics and continues to churn out powerful performances!
